Late this afternoon a Black Tern in basic or juv plumage was flying
south toward the middle of Long Island Sound from the vicinity of
Cockenoe Reef. First picked up on it by call, which I don't
specifically remember hearing in CT before. About an hour later a juv
Black Tern was roosting with a couple hundred Common Terns at the tern
colony on Cockenoe Island. Maybe the same bird, maybe not. Lots of
Common Terns in the area, plus many of the expected shorebird species
flying around the island and calling. It was very birdy out there.

>From Nick Bonomo:
8/19 - Westport, Cockenoe Island - 1-2 BLACK TERNS
